Time for a couple more classics Tom Hardy and Friday I'm In Love fill the basement venue. Tom Hardy is a firm favorite,the lyrics are extremely witty and put to a rowdy assault of guitars and drums, they produce a top quality song that makes an impact as soon as you hear it.The final time we will hear Trampolene play tonight but they do not disappoint, Storm Heaven is quite a personal for the lead singer Jack Jones, the title is something his grandfather said to him. This is a monster of a song, huge riffs, huge beats one feisty tune.Storm Heaven show cases each of the band members talents separately and together, lots of layers in it. Rob Steele provides some thunderous quick beats,it is quiet in parts then builds into a melodious roar. Jack Jones is off stage passing his guitar around letting people play it. He hands it to a guy that could play really well,not wanting to have all the fun he passes it to another lad, he plays really well too. Rob and Wayne seem to be engrossed in the jamming session that is taking place now, Jack watches him playing,he seems quite impressed.

The Mic has been turned off but they're not done yet Poundland is the last poem and the end of the gig. Jack is hoisted up on to the shoulders of two men who are tall as is Jack Jones and in a basement bar is maybe not the best decision. He starts the poem and someone shouts out " I got something for fifty pence in Poundland the other day." a laugh and Jack replies "There's always one! It's meant to be a Poundland!" continuing with the poem it's being said back word for word. Brilliant way to end the gig. Trampolene finish they receive rounds of applause, whistling and cheering. The night ends on a high. Wayne Thomas and Rob Steele head back stage and Jack Jones heads into the crowd where some people want to have a chat about the gig and grab the chance to get a quick photo.
Trampolene are a fantastic band they are very individual in their sound.lyrics and style.I think that they will be playing big,sold out shows in the not to distant future.They definetley have the drive to succeed but more importantly they have what it take musically there is no doubt in my mind that they are destined to go far in the music industry. I can't think of another band at the moment whose gig you can attend and be treated to variety of styles of music that you get at a Trampolene gig. I thoroughly enjoyed their gig on Friday night and intend to catch Trampolene anytime the play in Scotland.
